Mission of Friends of Illinois Nature Preserves
To provide support for the Illinois Nature Preserves System through education, raising funds, facilitating partnerships, and volunteerism.
We propose a supportive, collaborative, and positive approach, in the original spirit of the Illinois Nature Preserves System, to ensure long-term, sustainable conservation.
1. Advocating for and raising funds for the Illinois Nature Preserves System
2. Promoting and training volunteers to care for and watch over Nature Preserves where needed
3. Educating elected officials at state and local levels, taxpayers, and policy makers about the important benefits the Nature Preserves provide the current and future citizens of Illinois
One of the things we are most interested in learning is: what Nature Preserves are in your area, and how are they doing? Can you share any specific details related to invasive species and other issues or impacts?
Please share as much or as little as you'd like (the section will expand as you type). A list of nature preserves by county is available on the Illinois Nature Preserves Commission website:
